Yesterday we had a little party with friends where we all shared our favorite YouTube videos as we watched together and laughed. Laughter is great! There should be loads more fun happening in Christian community than there currently is! When is the last time you just had an evening of laugher with fellow Jesus followers? It's good stuff.
Anyway, last night I tweeted that I would share my faves with you on the blog. Here goes. After spending lots of time previewing lots of good YouTube videos, these are my list toppers in no particular order. MOST of them are very clean. A few could offend the easily offended. I have chosen to share them anyway. If you are easily offended, simply do not risk it. Don't watch any.

And now for the part of the title that caught some of your attention...a PORN WARNING...
Yesterday, while I was spending intentional time searching out the best of the best YouTube videos, I noticed something....
YouTube can be a slippery slope into pornography. The way it is designed seems to vacuum people into garbage. You can type "Jesus love you" into the search box and get women half dressed and titles advertising body parts. It's sad, really. And as I noticed this (and successfully fought the temptation to click on these enticing titles), I really felt the desire to warn people. Be careful. You can tell yourself "it's just YouTube" and end up several hours later in a place you do not need to be. And weeks later, months later, years later in a LIFESTYLE you do not want to be living.
Most of you either look at Porn already or it impacts your life in some other rather direct way. That can change. There is help. Take step 1....stop hiding. Yes, I think that is step 1. Admit it.
